And now it’s time for our final category in the first ever Milkies Awards: Best Drama!
Everything has been leading up to this point, so give it some serious consideration. There were quite a few game-changing Korean dramas this year. Dramas that allowed us to escape the nightmarish landscape of 2020. Sometimes we escaped just to visit another nightmare like Sweet Home or Kingdom 2. But other times it was to go somewhere warm and bursting with hope like Start-Up or Dr. Romantic 2. Lastly, some of us chose to disappear into grim fairytales only to be told It’s Okay To Not Be Okay. Did anyone else need to hear that this year?
It’s getting my vote for best drama, because of the journey of self-discovery it took me on along with the characters. Whether you saw yourself in Gang-tae, Sang-tae, or Moon-young, there was something in it for everyone. Something prompting you to look inside yourself and confront yourself.
My number two is Crash Landing On You for depicting a healthy relationship against the backdrop of one of the most secretive countries in the world. And Flower of Evil rounds up my top three for keeping me on the edge of my seat.
We at Drama Milk would like to apologize in advance if you don’t see a drama you enjoyed on the list. We couldn’t include everything that came out this year, so we tried to pick dramas that sparked conversation on Drama Milk and the drama-watching community in general. We also tried to go with dramas that were rated well among critics and fans alike. It’s a balancing act, so I’m sure you’ll spot a few exceptions, but we tried our best.
A drama also has to be finished to be considered. Any good dramas that are currently airing will be considered next year.
With that said, what was the best K-drama of 2020? What did it mean to you, and how did it help you get through everything going on in the world?
Once you vote below, make sure to vote in our other three categories:
- Who was the best K-drama villain of 2020?
- Who was the best K-drama couple of 2020?
- What K-drama couple had the best kiss of 2020?
You have until January 5th to vote (11:59 PM American Eastern Standard Time). Then join us again on January 7th to review what our community has chosen!
I’d really like to thank everyone who has voted so far. You’ve certainly made our very first Milkies a fun and memorable experience. I can’t wait to see how it grows over the next few years. If you have any ideas of what you’d like to see in the next Milkies, please let us know.
